At times, I must admit that my inability to sew makes me feel like a DIY phony. But when I find short-cuts (ways to avoid sewing), I can’t help but get a little giddy…like I am somehow cheating the system.

Today I feel like a real damn rebel, because I am going to show you how I made this woven wall hanging without sewing. What is even better…I made it for under $10 (take that Urban Outfitters).

It all started when I found this table runner at Ross for just $6.  I really wanted it to work in my dining room, but it clashed with my blue and white geometric rug and my OCD brain could not take all of the busy-ness. I vowed not to let it go to waste.

Then one day I walked by an existing wall hanging in my home, and a light bulb went off…reverse engineer that baby!

First, I measured the width of the table runner, so I knew how short to cut my dowel rod. Then , I cut the dowel rod with a mitre saw.

I also decided on the desired length of my wall hanging and cut the table runner, with scissors, accordingly.  I then draped my table runner over the dowel rod and tied jute string to each end of the dowel rod.

Flipping the table runner over, I hot glued the overlapping fabric to the back of the table runner fabric. This is how the dowel rod will stay in place.

After the basic structure of the wall hanging was in place, I wanted to add a little pizazz. So, I hot-glued this fringe trim (which I purchased from Hobby Lobby), to the bottom of the tapestry.

If owls or cutesy is not your thing, you can stop here. But I have a little bit of a kitschy side sometimes, and I had this adorable, woven owl that I had purchased while thrifting a while back.  I wanted to make use of this little guy, so I hot glued him onto the table runner, and I love how he added  texture and interest to the piece.

    1. You are so freaking talented it is ridiculous. I would not worry about sewing since you come up cool alternatives that everyone can do. This looks great and I love the tassels you used!
